Ch. d’Yquem Sauternes 1967

Sweet Wine from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 18-Mar-2016
This is very dark golden-yellow colour with orange, tawny and mahogany hues. On bouquet, rich and layered with vibrant dark orange marmalade, wild honey, barley sugar, caramel and toffee aromas, unfolding layers of savoury, near game-like elements, rancio suggestions, and mushroom nuances. The palate continues the full richness and layers of tertiary complexities of the bouquet. Caramel, toffee and crème brulee, and burnished wood-like waves. This has great density and concentration, but the palate retains fine acid tension to relieve the opulence. Fully mature, this will hold for years. 19.5+/20 Mar 2016 RRP $N/A  A delight.  Bright golden with light mahogany-tawny hints to the colour. Quite delicate on bouquet, this impressed with its purity and clean honey and marmalade aromas and white brulee notes. Slight volatility may have cramped its style resulting in the shyness. Nevertheless, a most attractive, smaller scale wine, without quite the size, but possessing freshness, delicacy and balance.  18.0+/20 Aug 2010
